Are you one for carrying a handbag and have a love for the days of NES gaming?  Then I have found the perfect handbag for you!  Meet the NES controller handbag I found on Etsy!

Etsy seller OpThread is selling this awesome NES controller handbag for $75.  Being a guy, I really have no clue what the difference is between a handbag and a purse (perhaps one of you can fill me in on the differences in the comments below), but since they seller is calling it a handbag, that is what I am going with.  Anyway, these NES controller handbags are made to order so expect it to take a couple of weeks to get it.

Does that electrical Junction box on the outside of your house or work look ugly and stick out like a sore thumb?  Well, you could do like one person did and camouflage it as a warp pipe and piranha plant from Super Mario Bros (although you should check with the owner before doing so if you aren’t the owner).

Apparently this Super Mario Bros styled electrical box was spotted by redditor AttentiveUnicorn in Cork, Ireland.  The original artist that turned this electrical junction box into this Super Mario Bros greatness is unknown so if you know who they are, let us know in the comments below so we can give them credit!

I’ve seen some pretty crazy cross-stitch creations in the past such as the Legend of Zelda stained glass cross-stitch design I posted earlier this year, but I think this Pokemon cross-stitch blows everything else I have ever seen right out of the water.

This insanely complicated Pokemon cross-stitch was created by a woman named Linda in Latvia.  It includes all of the first generation Pokemon (the only ones I ever really cared about) and cost $80 worth of materials to make.  I’m sure its pretty obvious based on just how complicated this looks to make, but it took a long time to make this impressive Pokemon cross-stitch.  In fact, it took Linda 8 months to complete this!  I would definitely say it was time well spent!

You knew it would happen eventually.  After all of the turtles that Mario has stomped on and all of the flowers that he has burned up, he was bound to piss off somebody eventually.  Personally, I figured it would be PETA or Greenpeace or somebody like that, but apparently it is the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that have taken offense to his turtle kicking ways.

This hilarious piece of Super Mario and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle art was created by DeviantART user JPZILLA.

Of course this begs the question, who would win in a fight, Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles or Mario from the Super Mario Bros games?  Let us know who you think would win in the comments below!

Have you ever wondered where all that money goes when you buy a new video game?  Well, I have a chart that explains where the money goes for today’s games, but I will save that for another day and show you one for SNES games from the 1990s instead.

Apparently these numbers on who takes what percentage of the money from a SNES game come out of the UK so for those in the US that don’t know what VAT is, it is a consumer tax.  However, I am sure that this chart looks pretty close to what it was in other areas of the world that don’t have a VAT.

The one thing that I find to be a little sad is just how little money actually went to the developers.  It seems rather unfair that Nintendo ran away with a third of the cost of each game and retailers just slightly less than that while the developers didn’t even get 5%.  I would expect that kind of behavior out of the RIAA, but Nintendo?!

Share your thoughts on these numbers in the comments below!

Maybe its because I have always been so good at the game that nobody can even come close to beating me (I welcome all challengers!), but the classic GoldenEye for the Nintendo 64 is still one of my all time favorite games.  There is just something enjoyable about shooting a guy in the butt and having him jump while grabbing the wound.

Anyway, for those that are also huge fans of the FPS classic GoldenEye, I thought you might want to join me in buying this awesome GoldenEye inspired Most Deadly shirt from BustedTees for just $20.  This shirt features the health meter from the GoldenEye watch with the recognition of “most deadly” in the center (the perfect description for my 007 skills).

If are looking to brag about your skills on a game from 1997 (like I do), this is the perfect way to do it!
